Smooth Moves by Stoops Troops

  • The Toyota Hall of Fame would have its eyes on you for this week's win. But the Toyota Hall of Fame doesn't have eyes. Obviously.
  • Benched RB LeSean McCoy, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 1.10.
  • Stoops Troops appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. The Green Bay Packers Defense, which was picked up by Stoops Troops, scored 12.00 points against a projected 8.05, topping their projection by 49.1%.
  • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and T.Y. Hilton have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked third in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 19.30 points.
  • Chris Boswell scored a season-high 12.00 points and beat his scoring projection by 89.3%, which led the matchup.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • It's okay to regret not taking a sick day to study the Toyota Hall of Fame's articles. But it's not okay to do it again.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Hunter Henry, who then scored below his 5.72-point projection with 1.60 points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. GDTBAE thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Todd Gurley. However, he scored 9.20 points against a projected 13.18 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • 5 of the starters on GDTBAE scored less than their projected points.
  • With 3.90 points, Brandon Marshall scored only 45.1% of his 8.65 projected point total.

What If

  • If Stoops Troops played GDTBAE every week, they would be 5-2 this season.
  • Besides GDTBAE, Stoops Troops would have defeated four other teams this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Stoops Troops would have defeated GDTBAE 112.58 - 89.00.
  • Stoops Troops would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as GDTBAE.
  • If Stoops Troops had played every team in the league each week, they would be 42-21.
  • GDTBAE would have lost to four other teams besides Stoops Troops this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Stoops Troops, GDTBAE would be 2-4.
  • GDTBAE would be 29-34 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes

  • Just like the Eagles' "Dream Team" of 2011, Stoops Troops has underachieved lately. They scored 92.62 points against a projected 98.15 and has underachieved for five straight weeks.
  • The margin of victory of 0.34 points was the smallest in the league this season.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that GDTBAE knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 92.28 points against a projected 95.28 and underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • It was a tough loss for GDTBAE, which put up the 10th-biggest score for a losing team in the league this season.
  • The loss snapped a four-game win streak by GDTBAE.
  • Sterling Shepard did little to help Stoops Troops, underperforming versus projections for the fourth straight game with 3.20 points against a projected 7.56.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Antonio Gates needs to step it up! He scored 3.80 points against a projected 6.97 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in three straight games.
  • With the win, Stoops Troops improves to 1-1 in close games this season.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Shannon Sharpe Den - TE 2002 vs. Kansas City 12 Catches, 214 yards, 2 touchdowns In a career that included eight Pro Bowls and a seven top 2 finishes at the TE position in fantasy scoring, Sharpe was never better than his 214-yard, two-TD performance against the division-rival Chiefs in Week 7 of 2002.

In fact, no tight end has ever had a better week since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Sharpe still stands as the only tight end to tally 200-plus receiving yards in a game and his PPR-popping 12 catches is a total that has only been reached 17 times by a TE since the merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
